Tiny violin time – Beck, Hannity lose their Philly area stations (4th largest market)

Does anyone feel like popping the cork on a bottle of champagne over this news?

Mediaite has learned Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are being dropped from their Philadelphia radio station, WPHT 1210 (The Big Talker), in January.

The station is a CBS affiliate, and Philadelphia is the fourth largest radio market.

Taking Beck’s 9am-noon slot is the local Dom Giordano, currently 6-10pm. Then comes Rush Limbaugh, noon-3pm, and Smerconish – who replaces Sean Hannity.

Semi-related hilarity:

* NYT Weekend Opinionator: Pam Spaulding = Glenn Beck

* Video: Glenn Beck’s tears of patriotic fervor generated by Vicks Vapo-Rub

* Sean Hannity loses his mind (again) over men kissing

* Sean Hannity smears Kevin Jennings, but suddenly HE is the victim?

Sarah Palin to Give First Post-Shooting Interview to Sean Hannity, Will Speak at Gun Club Convention

Palin

Sarah Palin know where she's safe:

"An executive at Fox News Channel said that Ms. Palin would appear on the program of the conservative host Sean Hannity, and that the interview was scheduled to run through several commercial breaks. The announcement came on Thursday, another day when Ms. Palin was figuring prominently in the discussion surrounding the Tucson shooting rampage, for her video statement about the shootings that she released Wednesday morning to stinging reviews from liberals and even some Republicans.

Ms. Palin is a paid Fox contributor, but she has been laying low on the network in the wake of the shooting. Her agreement to sit for an interview comes as even some Republicans have urged her to put herself out there for questions amid the criticism she is facing."

And she'll also speak in front of a gun club later this month.

Christine O’Donnell To Hannity: I’m Not Doing Any More National Media

We’re seeing more and more of this. Teabagger candidates are refusing media requests, preferring to deliver their messages one-way from behind a podium rather than face serious questions about their loony tunes positions.

Joe. My. God.

Video: Hannity and Rove jump into a catfight over teabagger O’Donnell’s win in Delaware

Enjoy a giant serving of delicious schadenfreude in this video as Sean Hannity gets a smackdown by Karl Rove over the success of anti-masturbator, anti-gay winner of the Delaware U.S. Senate GOP primary, teabagger Christine O’Donnell:

Hat tip to Digby, who said:


Oooh. Daddy Karl and Uncle Sean had quite the spat tonight. How long before they drum Rove out of the party? Sorry Karl, you and your friends birthed this hideous monster and now it’s turning on you. Did you think you would be immune?

Here’s the video from Rachel’s show, where they snagged O’Donnell’s anti-masturbation appearance for MTV:
